Unfortunately the mayor doesn't share my sentiment. And, understandably, neither does Philly Mag. (A summit on race? Seriously?)
I can understand Philly Mag milking this story to the very last drop; they were losing advertising dollars because no one was reading it. And now, with this article, all of that might have changed.
Mayor Nutter, on the other hand, has far more important things to be worrying about these days. The last thing we need is an official letter from the Mayor to Philly Magazine crying a river about the article.
So anyway, there was Sarah Palin down in Maryland (every time I see that woman I hear the Michigan fight song in my head) making light of a serious health problem in this country, comparing the president of the United States to a convicted felon, and joking about background checks for potential gun owners. She did this from the podium while speaking at a major conservative conference.
I suppose we shouldn't be surprised that one of the Sunday morning talking heads said that CPAC reminds him of "going to the land before time." Someone needs to stop these people before this country loses one of its major political parties.
For instance, we know that you can't control all of the people under your tent, but an official statement about what transpired at one of the breakout sessions on race down at CPAC would have been nice. Instead, you let sites like Little Green Footballs run an article on it and some of the racists in your party. What do we get from you? *crickets*
